Hello,

I have a question regarding Nuance PaperPort 12.1. I have the application packaged but am trying to figure out how to suppress (or silently activate) the license activation gui that appears during the install.

Only seems to be possible through the "volume licensing programs".

The issue is a bit more tricky. I found another user's description which fits my situation perfectlty. The software mentioned below, Dragon Naturally speaking, and the one I'm having an issue with, PaperPort12, is published by the same vendor, Nuance.

"I'm trying to package and deploy Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 preferred. I have the install packaged well and it distributes without issue. My problem is where the user runs it for the first time. It requires the user to activate the product. I would love to automate this to keep the activation away from the user.

The problem with packaging the activation is that the application generates a unique ID Key for each machine and then generates the activation key based off of that from the nuance website. So I can't just place an activation key into the package.

Any ideas?

with apps like this which probably generate a unique id based on the pc you generally have to bite the bullet. Open up any permissions required to create the registration information and let users do it themselves.

As long as you communicate it to users then it normally works. I've written a small readme that explains what they have to do to activate and included as a shortcut before.
